Twickenham Stadium transport notice

For the 2015 QBE Internationals, England v France (15 August) and England v Ireland (5 September), the RFU and England Rugby 2015 are working with TfL and Richmond Council to trial some of the additional transport measures that will be put in place for the ten matches at Twickenham Stadium during Rugby World Cup 2015.

There will be new and additional ways for fans to get to and from Twickenham Stadium such as park and ride facilities from Kempton Park and shuttle buses back into central London after these two RFU matches. We’re finalising the plans at present and will provide full details on the exact activity in due course so please keep an eye out for updates.
